Siezed Nuts?

Posted: September 23, 2010 in Racing

No, I’m not trying to sell you something to enhance anything.  I decided to try this seized nut removal tool I got from Harbor Freight.  It is supposed to remove the nut from the bolt without damaging the bolt and its threads.  I had some severely rusted bolts/nuts on an exhaust I needed to dismantle from a parts car I had.  The two I tried to remove with normal tools would not budge and one broke.  The tool works pretty easy.  The chromoly frame goes over the nut you wish to remove and a controlled hardened chisel is advanced using a normal ratchet into the nut splitting it and allowing you to take a pin / punch and break the nut off.  It does not damage the threads.
